The Blue director is already going places. His maiden underwater thriller is yet to be out. But Tony has already convinced his producers Ashtavinayak to produce his next.
It will star Akshay Kumar, but no Sanjay Dutt. Instead it will bring John Abraham into an action combination with Akshay. The two have so far only been seen in a comedy Priyadarshan"s Garam Masala after which the senior actor was accused of tampering with John"s role. The charge was vehemently denied by both the actors. But the bitterness remained…until now.
Says Tony, “Akshay was on board for the next project from the word go. After Blue I can"t dream of making a film without him. Blue couldn"t have been made without Akshay. As for John, it"s strange with his physique and body language he has never done a full-on action film."
Tony sees the twosome not in the comic mould but in the slick stunt space. The film to start early next year will have never-before action. “If I was a member of the audience I"d want to see the two together in the kind of stunts never seen before."
After going underwater in Blue we"d be seeing the director indulge in a lot of aerial stunts in his next.
